for REDRAM

If you had the chain saw or any other lawn product or combustion device sit and not be used every day the problem could be the e-10/ethanol gas(forced upon us) that clogs everything up.

Re: Bad fuel. Yeah I have had issues with other power equipment due to poor fuel, no doubt about that. But I replaced the Poulan with a Husquvarna, and it sits just as much, and will always fire up within 2-3 pulls. Oh, and incidently, as I recently discovered, (FWIW) Husky makes Poulan, but only for the American market. Hmmm.....

Fixt. Actually a fun product when it works, but so seldom does it all work.

You come across as the most delightful fellow. I can't imagine for the life of me why you might receive poor customer service from anyone.

Aerostich Elkskin gloves

Aerostich Elk skin gloves: These were terrible in cold and wet weather.
I wanted to toss these $120 gloves in the garbage, but then how would I have sent them back to Aerostich?
Too bad, Aerostich usually puts out better quality products.

we're not going to have a bunch of identical threads, it's best to keep all this info in one place.

Merged..

Poulan powered weed wacker, would almost swear it didn't really need gasoline just a LOT of cranking to wind up the rubber band. Non-ethanol fuel here. Also the trimmer head connection to the shaft was very sketchy; didn't dare ever use the brush-cutter option that was included.
